Mediterranean House Gecko (Hemidactylus turcicus)

Origin: The Mediterranean, although it now lives nearly everywhere
Sighted at: My home in Austin, TX

Animals! I’ve seen lizards all over the place in Texas, lately, which has been a great comfort, since they’re everywhere in Florida, and seeing lizards makes me feel like I’m at home. This little fellow was scurrying around in my garage!

Mediterranean geckos are sometimes called MOON LIZARDS because they come out at twilight! That’s, like, the best name ever!
